November 28, 2010: From CarolAnn Garratt and Veronica Baird: Thom Kane is underway on his around the world flight in a Cessna 180. He’s just left Hilo, Hawaii after departing Florida on November 17th. Thom and Veronica, shown in the Brasilia picture, participated in the Earthrounders’ meeting in Brasilia. Thom made some tremendous contacts, got lots of questions answered and most importantly got inspired by other pilots at the Earthrounder meeting to turn his dream into reality.
Upon returning home to Florida, Thom has worked full-time for four months to get his plane ready, ferry tanks, HF radio, etc and to do all the detailed planning. Thom will be visiting his Earthrounder friends in Australia in December and continuing to Thailand in February.
